Prayers for the Chronically Ill – Prosper

Today’s passage speaks on our mental health and general well-being

Today’s Bible Verse:

3 John 1:2 (KJV), “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

What the verse means:

John the author is addressing Gaius. The prosperity referred to here is mental health and general well-being.  John wants Gaius to prosper and have good health equal to his spiritual health.

Praying using the verses:

  1. Heavenly Father, we pray that we may prosper, that is, be healthy fiscally.
  2. Lord Jesus, we pray that we would be in physically good health and that health would mirror our spiritual health.
  3. We pray for rest and peace of mind.
